WATCH: Security Guard Saves Elderly Man From Committing Suicide By Jumping From Building

In a shocking video obtained by ABC News, a security guard is captured heroically saving an elderly man from jumping to his death.

The quick-thinking security guard is seen rushing toward a terrace and screaming, "Hey, hey, hey!" The guard at the Connecticut retirement home then leaps at the man attempting to commit suicide, pulling him over and bringing him to the ground before he can fully jump over the ledge of the terrace.


The elderly man was staying at a retirement home in Hamden, Connecticut.

The footage was captured by the Hamden Police Department on April 21.
